About the property

3 Bedrooms, 1.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 6) ocean view

Best beach in Holgate, only steps away!!

Everything is clean and in great shape. We clean and care for the property ourselves. I personally maintain the house and gardens myself!

This is a duplex laid out beautifully to separate each unit giving you have your own "home". Separate parking, yards, showers, grills, entrances, clothes lines, trash bins and laundry rooms.

The king, double, and 3 twin beds accommodate 2 couples and 3 singles, or 1 couple and 4 singles.

We supply 6 beach badges, 4 beach chairs, an umbrella, and many beach toys.

Gardens and more greet you at this classic beach house. One mile from the south end of the island, we are situated in a quiet residential neighborhood with beach access directly across the street. Here the ocean road is two lanes with extra wide bike lanes on both sides for strolling, biking, and rollerblading. The beach to our right is unguarded with NO crowds; plenty of great fishing opportunities for the surfcaster. The beach to the left is guarded and kid friendly. Three surfing beaches are within 1 mile in both directions of the house (Holyoke, Nelson and the Forsythe jetty). Our home is close to the bay and beautiful bird-filled open marshland. Beach Haven and all of its activities are just 1 mile to the north. The peace and natural beauty of the John Forsythe National Refuge stretches for miles just 1 mile south of us.

There is also a teak table with four chairs, and 4 additional porch chairs on the large covered porch over looking the ocean , dunes, and gardens. There you can enjoy the breezes from any direction.

The living room has a large screen TV, biege/blue/white striped sofa, 2 chairs and rocking chair. Wi-Fi included.

The master bedroom has a king bed and its own 1/2 bath. There is a another bedroom with a double bed, and a third bedroom with a brand new twin oak bunk bed and another twin bed. All of the bedrooms have brand new tile flooring that imitates hardwood.

You have your own laundry room/storage room, with a washer and dryer, next to your deluxe outside shower. In your back yard your have a gas grill and clothes line for bathing suits and towels.

We provide 6 beach badges,an umbrella and chairs for your days at the beach. We even have beach toys for the kids. Bike rentals are less than a 1/2 mile away....walking distance, at The Boardwalk. All you need to bring are bed linens and towels (and lots of sun screen).

Excellent week

  • 5 of 5

We stayed the week of Labor Day and loved our visit. The beach is an easy walk away and both the end of the island and the town are nearby. It's in a quiet location and the accommodations provided all we needed. We hope to come back soon! Don't miss the sunsets over the bay. Gorgeous!

Great House, Wonderful Host

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful stay. The location is perfect, it is directly across the street from the beach. The house is in Holgate on the quiet end of the island, which is great for families but also very convenient to the bars, restaurants, stores, etc. The house has everything you need including a dedicated outdoor shower and a laundry/storage room on the ground level. Lorraine and her family are great hosts, making sure you have everything you need. We hope to return next summer.

About Lorraine

Hi! My name is Lorraine and I do it all.

This is truly a vacation rental by owner. I handle all aspects of this property. You contact me directly through this site and I will guide you through the rental process.

I also maintain the property.

We are a active family of four, mom dad and 2 daughters. My husband and I both grew up spending our summers here on the island.

Lorraine purchased this house in 1998

Why Lorraine chose South Beach Haven

My parents have owned a home here since 1966 and I love the small town charm of Beach Haven and the peace and solitude of Holgate. We have 3 surfing beaches within the 1 mile stretch of Holgate, and the beautiful bird sanctuary to the south. There is still open land, plenty of wildlife, and wide open spaces to put down your blanket and belongings on the beach.

What makes this house unique

We are just across a 2 lane street from the beach, so you get the short hop to the beach and all the breezes without the beach-front price.

Car: recommended

We are one mile from the south end of the island. It is quiet, narrow, and family oriented. Wide open spaces and quiet beaches. The bay is a short walk down the street for sunset viewing with the neighbors.
